New Database: ProQuest Statistical Abstract of the United States

Described as “a snapshot of America and its people,” The Statistical Abstract of the United States is the most comprehensive collection of statistics on the social, political, and economic conditions of the United States. Since its inception in 1878, it has been the most used statistical reference in U.S. libraries.

In 2013, ProQuest took over The Statistical Abstract when the U.S. Census Bureau ceased publication after 133 years. In the new online version, users can find the information they are looking for quickly in ProQuest’s familiar interface. Here is a quick overview of the database:

Researchers who used The Statistical Abstract online when it was hosted by the Census Bureau will find that ProQuest has improved the user-friendliness of the database and added a number of great features such as APA and MLA citations for each table. The Statistical Abstract is a core reference tool for business, government, and the social sciences and should be the go-to choice for any statistical inquiry about the United States.
